Description

Although the WCST is used primarily to assess perseveration and abstract thinking, it has gained increasing popularity as a neuropsychological instrument. It has been considered a measure of executive function because of its reported sensitivity to frontal lobe dysfunction. As such, the WCST allows the clinician to assess the following “frontal” lobe functions: strategic planning organized searching, utilizing environmental feedback to shift cognitive sets, directing behavior toward achieving a goal and modulating impulsive responding.
